Creating a composite track--otherwise known as a comp--where you edit together the…best parts of several takes into one master take is a quick process using…playlists in Pro Tools.…Let's take a look at this session.…I have got two guitar tracks up here that are playing cords,…I have got a lead guitar track here, and then I've got three recorded playlists…of a harmony guitar track.…We know that these are on playlists, because we're looking at the Playlist Track view.…
So to get a handle on starting to edit these, I want to actually loop the…playback, so I can hear each one of them.…So I am going to go over to the Play button, right-click, choose Loop.…Then I am going to double-click this with the selector to highlight this whole region.…As I start playing this back, I can hit these Solo buttons, and that will switch…over the playlist from the original to these sub-playlists.…Another way to make that happen is to actually click in the playlist and hit…Shift+S, and that'll turn on the Solo button.…
